? in particular, health care. romney said "with hwith hispani voters, free health care was a big plus. plus, with regards to young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. there was instant backlash from republicans. >> this is not where the republican party needs to go. look, we want -- if you want voters to like you, the first thing you've got to do is to like them first. and it's certainly not helpful to tell voters that you think their votes were bought. that's not a way to show them that you respect them, you like them. we need to stop talking down to voters. >> maria cardona and amy holmes are back with me now. amy, you heard that there. sour grapes or does mitt romney have a point? >> well, you know, the president did campaign on those issues, but whether or not he won because of them is a separate question. and republicans are supposed to be the party of personal responsibility. so i can understand why governor jindal was none too pleased with mitt romney's assessment. >> and maria,
? . he believed this was an issue that voters cared about that independents would swing to obama over climate change and some of the polling absolutely supports this that this was one of the reasons that people voted for obama over romney was that they were concerned about climate change and they felt he was a better candidate on climate change. we had a terrible, terrible candidate on climate change and we had a candidate on climate change who needs a lot of pressure. so i feel more optimistic than i did in 2008 because in 2008 the attitude of the environmental movement was our guy just got in and we need to support him and he's going to give us the legislation that we want and we'll take his advice and we're going to be good little soldiers and now maybe i'm being overly optimistic, but i think people learn the lesson of the past four years and people now understand that what obama needs and what we need, forget what obama needs is a real independent movement with climate change at its center and it will put pressure the entire political class and there's no waiting around for obama
all the black, latino, young voters who showed them their appreciation. that is the bedtime mitt romney is telling himself on those sleepless nights when he lies awake still trying to make sense of why he's not the president. the former governor got caught on tape again. speaking to a group of wealthy like-minded people again. telling us what he really thinks about the half of the country whose votes he couldn't win again. >> what the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinaire financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> romney's story was actually the second chapter in the tale republicans have been spinning to explain the election. the first came earlier in the week when romney's former running mate paul ryan placed the blame on democrats in urban areas. >> the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> never mind the fact that he and mitt romney c
. now a discussion with adviser to both president obama and mitt romney's campaign in the 2012 election. they talked about voter turnout, the president's debate and comparison to the 2008 election. this is about twenty five minutes. [applause] my name is justin smith. i'm the president of atlanta media company. i'm delighted to welcome you to the fourth annual washington idea forum convene bid the atlantic, the aspen substitute and the museum. as many of you know the atlanta has been in the business for a long time. 1857, to be exact, it wasn't until nine years ago that we truly became serious about creating the most interest and ambitious live forum for discussion on politicses and business and science and technology in the arts. it was really thanks to the vision of the established author and journalist walter isaacson president and ceo of the aspen institute who approached owner about partnering to create a new event called at agency pen idea festival. less than a decade, the aspen idea festival, which takes place every summer in the beautiful aspen campus in colorado has become a le
conservatives know this is no way to treat a potential voter. a columnist i usually only agree with about movies put it this wa way in his new york post column today. romney didn't say that the election had come out as it did because obama's team had outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. rather, he said that obama had won the second term essentially through bribery. well, look, i have three rules for both parties as they converge now to do their jobs. respect the voter, respect each other's offices, and search hard for common ground. those are what we should be doing, and that should be the way we're guiding our country's conversation today. not trashing the people who voted against you. but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. david corn is washington bureau chief for mother jones, and joy reid is managing editor of the grio. both are msnbc political analysts. look, let's take a look at some of the stuff from john mccain here. it's been four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid. just ten days since mitt romney lost, but they still are

[laughter] our ideas work, their ideas don't. the last four years our economy has grown 1.5% a year. that is less than half the historical average. for 70 years has averaged 3.3% growth a year. and this president i
election, he hit the road to challenge voters and, according to the bbc, lay bare the deeper moral questions bound up in the noisy romney and obama campaigns. in one presentation he played off the now-famous obama question with a session called "who built it?" is responsibility for one's own success a myth? a native of minneapolis, michael attended high school in los angeles, is a graduate of brandeis university and holds a ph.d. in philosophy from oxford university. he is the robert m. bass professor of government at harvard. the year 2009 seems to have been a watershed year for both michael and harvard. by then more than 15,000 students had taken his famous course, justice, which provided the basis for his previous book, "justice: what's the right thing to do?" it was in 2009 that michael and the university allowed public television stations across the country to sit in on the course where topics ranged from wall street bonuses to same-sex marriage. it drew the attention of the phi times which published an article. the difficulty in this course is in what teaching you already k
